COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not a smoke beer. It’s not a tart Berliner Weisse. It’s maybe a weird saison. BerlinerRauchSaison. Yes! Low gravity beer with good presence of wheat. A small layer of smoke malt disappears after a few sips. And light tartness and spice from the Saison yeast. Refreshing and flavourful at the same time.

Draught (3.8%) @ Lambic Foeder, Bruges. Rated on 25.06.2015
Aroma has sweet and soapy citrus and mild cereal. Flavour has strong citrus, tart notes and some mild lemonade tones. A citrusy wit - reminds me of some lemonade-like Belgian ones.

250 ml. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Hazy golden, big quickly fading egg-white head. Mellow sweetish smoked wheat nose mixed with big sweet gelatin candy, sweet candy, wheat, plastic, a combination that doesn’t make any sense to me. Taste is very odd mixture that doesn’t work for me, like gummy bears, sweet candy with smoked plastic, lingering plastic, faint almost vaguely peat smoked wheat, lingering odd smoked plastic aftertaste mixed with the heavy gelatin candy sweetness, soda, odd mix, lingering plastic finish that reminds me of bitter plastic, peach, plastic wheat,… Very odd mix flavors that really don’t jell for me,… Overly carbonated. Doesn’t work for me, I had higher hopes.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 25, 2015
Big white head. Clear yellow body with strong carbonation. Bready buttery smoky aroma with fruity dusty notes. Well, that’s certainly unique. Sweetish strawy smoky bready taste with banana notes. Mid-to-light body. Soft, mild, fluffy mouthfeel. Sweetish fruity mealy banana aftertaste with herbal earthy notes. An excellent beer. Really different, vivid, easy-drinking, and full of flavour. (0.65l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)

rumproasts (4149) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Tap. Hazy deep golden with small head. Light and slightly fruity. Smoke is an odd addition, but it kind of works. Has a bit of a band aid flavor. Not sure that’s a thing, but this has it.

rosenbergh (8580) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2015
750 ml bottle. Bottled on 07/2014. Courtesy of Timo A. Clear yellow colour with a tiny white head. Smoke, bacon and mild berry tartness in the aroma. The flavour is mild smoke, mild tartness, sweetness and some herbal notes. Weird. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Unde (579) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 26, 2015
Hazy yellow colour and delicate head. Aroma has smoke, sweet malts and some malts as well. Taste has sweet fruits, barley and wheat malts and also smoke. Light and high carbonation. Interesting beer for sure but the execution could’ve been better. Not bad though.

Punkero (74) - FINLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Hazy golden. Foamless. Farm, a bit of smoke and wood. The ultimate spring season beer after a busy day ploughing the fields.

A light yellow, hazy, a head is white and small. Aroma has dry smoke, sourness and fruitness, some lemon. Taste has riped fruits, nice smokyness, even overriped fruits, some (milk)sourness. Medium bodied, high carbonation. Weird mix of styles, fascinating.
